Clear yellow appearance, no head. Malty pineapple aroma, not much if any hops. Plain fruit beer.

Geiserich (3349) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 14, 2013
Can: Intensive pineapple aroma and flavor, sugary, quite sweet. Very pale yellow color, no head. Definitely no beer character but a nice lemonade ;-)

Yellow, clear, no head. Foul fruity aroma. Fake, sugary pineapple flavor. Why, why, why, why, why?!?!?!?!?

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2013
Can shared by larsga. A quickly fading white head, over bright pale yellow body. Smell of candy-fruit and something artificial acidic. Taste is fruit-drops dissolved in carbonized water with some ascorbic acids added. Oh dear. [26.09.12]

330ml can bought from local ParkNShop supermarket; Amber colour; No head and near zero froth, no lacing to speak of and carbonation is minimal; Smell of sickly sweet pineapple fruit, sugar syrup and rice; Very thin body; Apparent taste of pineapple flavouring, syrup and rice, no hop taste or palate at all; It’s so sweet it gave me a sore throat and I have to wash it down with hot tea afterwards. Slighty dry aftertaste.

Comments: Just when I thought Taiwan Beer Pineapple was mediocre enough, this product gives the word “nadir” a whole new meaning: at abv less than 1.0% it bears no resemblance of a proper beer, as Zhujiang makes no pretense in the product description shown on its website: “With low alcohol content, even children can enjoy.” I don’t think kids will enjoy it because the syrupy taste is so strong it may hurt their throats. I don’t mind if it doesn’t has real fruit in it, just as long as you put some effort to make a decent product. With the look, smell, taste, palate and feel all close to zero, this isn’t even half-arse, it belongs to the bin.

larsga (6179) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2012
Medium white head quickly disappears with a fizzing sound. Clear yellow body with large-bubbled carbonation. Perfumy fruity aroma with orangey soft drink notes. Sweet artificial sugary generic fruit taste. Mid-bodied. Sweet aftertaste is same as main flavour. Tastes like a soft drink, with all the complexity of a Harry Potter character. (0.33l can, Wellcome Supermarket, Hong Kong.)

Can. Found in Guangzhou, China. Probably the same beer as brewed in Hong Kong (called Guangs Pineapple Beer). However, my can states mine was brewed by Pearl River Brewery in Guangzhou. Now to the beer: Delicious, sweet, not at all beer-like, though. Basically a soda with 1% abv. Tons of pineapple flavoring but it’s not cloying or artificial tasting. Overall, a fun refresher on a hot and humid day in southern China.
